NASCAR fines Gordon, Boyer's crew chief for brawl

PHOENIX, Ariz. -- It's the brawl everyone is still talking about.

Now NASCAR is handing down punishments. Jeff Gordon said Clint Bowyer got too close Sunday in Phoenix.

With just a few laps left, Gordon deliberately took Bowyer out. Minutes later, Boywer's crew chief started swinging.

“I've just had it, you know?” said Gordon. “Clint's run into me numerous times, wrecked me. Fed up with it and got him back."

"It’s pretty embarrassing for a four-time champion and what I consider one of the best this sport's ever seen to act like that,” said Bowyer. “It's just completely ridiculous."

The crowd loved the scuffle and erupted in cheers. Jeff Gordon was fined $100,000, docked points and placed on probation.

Boyer's crew chief was fined $25,000.
